in Revolt

Raison d’être

Jacobin is a leading voice of the American left, offering socialist perspectives on politics, economics, and culture. The print magazine is released quarterly and reaches 75,000 subscribers, in addition to a web audience of over 3,000,000 a month.


The appearance of Jacobin magazine has been a bright light in dark times. Each issue brings penetrating, lively discussions and analyses of matters of real significance, from a thoughtful left perspective that is refreshing and all too rare. A really impressive contribution to sanity, and hope.

— Noam Chomsky

Jacobin, whose ninth issue just landed, has certainly been an improbable hit, buoyed by the radical stirrings of the Occupy movement and a bitingly satirical but serious-minded style.

— Jennifer Schuessler for the New York Times

I love Jacobin, both the content and spirit. In a time of torpor bordering on despair, it’s great to see the youth embracing radical politics and serious thinking while also having some fun. And it’s a print magazine that looks great, too. Everyone should subscribe.

— Doug Henwood, Left Business Observer

I really like Jacobin — it’s very explicitly on the radical left, and sort of hostile to liberal accommodationism. There’s a lot in there that I don’t necessarily agree with, but it’s bracingly rigorous and polemical in a really thought-provoking way. It’s a really well-done publication, almost preternaturally good.

— Chris Hayes, host of All In w/ Chris Hayes
